“I remember looking at Grayson on that gurney in the back of that ambulance and him crying and the police stopped to talk to me before they took me to him and all I could think about was thank God because he lives and cries,” he recalled.

“Then they said you wanted to drive him to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital and I said, ‘I’m not going anywhere. I’ll be with him until he comes home with me,'” he continued. “So I remember holding his hand and saying, ‘It’s okay. It’s going to be okay.'”
